The Palace Collective presents The Palace International Film Festival (PIFF) taking place at The Cube Microplex in Bristol on March 14, 15 and 16. PIFF gives a unique platform to a diverse selection of queer cinema, showcasing shorts and feature films from international underground artists, a special screening with a live score, and a closing Palace Party with live acts and immersive installations.
Like the Palace Collective itself, PIFF began life in an artist’s residency at a Polish Palace, where it gave a platform to queer art and ideas.
PIFF will make its UK debut in Bristol this March with a 3-day gala showcase. The festival will open with feature film Fluidø, a Berlin-produced sci-fi punk dystopian vision of the post AIDS-future of 2060. On Day 2, a mystery queer film will be screened (TBA) from a director with a large cult following, and an accompanying score performed live in the cinema by artists from The Palace Collective. The gala will close with Shakedown, a feature film that paints an intimate portrait of an underground lesbian club community in Los Angeles.
